Ah, but look, he's obviously been and fuelled up ready for his south coast adventure. You must have been looking in the wrong place.

The sea state is currently: "Slight occasionally moderate in the South". Wind 3 or 4.

So shouldn't be too uncomfortable but the weather is almost certainly rainy and will, therefore, be damp!

Wet weather gear on and I will be out to meet and greet (even in the rain, it's good to get out of the office!)

Yeah it was breezy on the way back. Wet rather than bumpy though.

All the Frenchies were complaining about it when we came in, too rough for them apparently

Obviously so. I was around at that time so it's strange I didn't see him.

It's quite funny how I can just leave the EU and turn up in France again, neither end caring a jot. I proffered my passport and to fill in customs at the harbour office but they weren't interested. Cycled halfway along to St. Aubins actually, lovely day

I wasn't hiding
Saw into the red on the fisherman's pontoon, lucky you didn't get cast off and sent down the road...

My little weather window for crossing the channel has slowly been shrinking, we'll see how things are in the morning

Currently 15kn in Jersey, 3 in Southampton. Heading north never looked so tempting
